What I Think

I think that there is something inherently wrong with a society that accepts slaving away at a job in order to live as opposed to each individual contributing to society with their skills and passion, i.e. what they do best.

I think snobs and sellouts suck.

I think too many people value the wrong things.

I think that technological advancements are amazing, but that they also contribute to poor health, laziness, and arrogance.

I think everyone needs a technological time-out.

I think I know very little about even less topics.

I think I prefer the ultra-right wing, overtly racist person to the liberal, I-feel-sorry-for-you-because-you-are-poor-or-black-and-I-want-to-save-you-but-often-say-offensive-things-but-am-a-well-meaning person.

I think I’m pretty good at a lot of things, but have no motivation to work at them to become great because the world sucks my soul dry.

I think that Americans are some of the most complacent people on the planet.

I think that government should either not exist or be made up of volunteers approved by consensus.

I think I dislike when people say, “That moment when…” or “That feeling when…” Great, we all have moments. Why can’t you just talk about the actual moment instead or why you are feeling that particular way?

I think the phrase, “Said no one ever” should die.

I think that people on the political left are just regurgitating the moronic conservatives on the political right when they say that marriage is a Christian institution. No, it’s not. Please refrain from this argument in your case against any marriage whatsoever because it’s wrong. Marriage pre-dates Christianity and Christians aren’t the only ones who get married, contrary to those spewing rhetoric from the right and those borrowing it on the left.

I think that there are very few trustworthy people. It’s even hard to trust those fighting the good fight.

I think that movies are made longer than ever to keep people entertained and distracted for longer.

I think that if society is committed to living in a capitalist world, then the (lefty) libertarian view of economics probably should be put into practice, otherwise people and countries will go bankrupt over and over again and we will have a small percent of extremely wealthy people with the majority being extremely desolate and poor. Maybe it would allow a greater middle class, or provide more opportunity to those who do not have it; at the very least, we won’t be wasting money on war and weapons and occupying other nations. However, no matter what kind of economics is put into practice within capitalism, there will always be poor people. Why can’t we try something else?

I think I hate everything.

I think it’s okay to be enamored by something that goes against your beliefs as long as it doesn’t harm others.

I think the production of any type of perfume or cologne should cease. Stop suffocating me, please.

I think women should stop piling make-up on their faces.

I think that people are stupid when they say that being an artist is easy or takes no effort.

I think that I would like to live reclusively and self-sufficiently accompanied by a bunch of books, art, and art supplies.

I think that everything should burn.

I think people should turn the tv off.

I think I’m tired.

I think mainstream music is in the saddest state it has ever been in.

I think I get headaches all the time because I am alive in this world.

I think orange is a nice color.

I also think purple is a nice color.

I think it’s cool that you can’t get those nice two previous colors without mixing other colors.

I think I need to relax, but I don’t know how.

I think I’m really tired of the Guy Fawkes mask.

I think that there are several levels of hell and that this is the top one.

I think that this is it for now so I’ll end here.

Art’s Capabilities: Thoughts?

Can art actually create change or can art only inspire change?

What do you think and why?
